New Year’s Eve Makeup Ideas

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 3 views

Now for makeup!!
Make sure to keep your makeup simple, sultry and sexy (remember the 3S). Even if your outfit is simple. You don’t need to overdo your makeup to stand out. You want to achieve effortless chic look.

You can never go wrong with a smokey eye. For Amanda’s super-sultry eye makeup look. Start by using, an eyeshadow primer, i would recommend Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (£16) Try Stila’s In The Moment Eye Shadow Palette (£22.50). Smudge the deep purple, upwards and outwards on the eyelid, use the colour ‘whim’ as your transition colour and ‘wonder’ as your brow bone highlight and your tear dot highlight to open up your eyes. 

For your bottom lashes,use the dark purple in the outer corner, ‘whim’ in the mid section and ‘wonder’ to highlight the tear-dot area. Finally,line the upper and lower lash starting from the inner edge of your iris (that’s the colored part of your eyeball—lining from here instead of from all the way in the inside corner makes your eyes look bigger) with a black kohl pencil (try Rimmel’s Soft Kohl Eye Pencil, (£2.99), in  Jet Black) then smudged out a little.

Finish the look with a mascara, try Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Mascara (£7.19).

To recreate J-Law’s seductive, sparkling eye look, using the same techniques above, blend a shades of black all over your lids, using brown as your transition colour and pale pink to open up yours eyes. Line your eyes with a liquid liner on your top and bottom lashes and finish off with a coat of mascara.

To give either smokey eyes the glam finish, pair with dewy skin, peachy or naturally bronzed cheeks and a glossy nude or pink matte lips to finish off.

Finally, set your face for the night with a setting spray. I would recommend Urban Decay All Nighter Make-Up Setting Spray (£20).

 Happy New Year in advance. 
I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve! 
Whatever, you do this evening. 
Thanks for your support this year.
See Y’all in 2015.

    Get Ready- New Year’s Eve- Hair

    By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 2 views

    In hopes of starting the year off right, the year’s biggest celebration takes serious planning. Well, New Year’s Eve makeup is on a different level. As this will be your very first fashion statement of 2015 and you want it to be memorable. 

    I have put together ideas to make sure you end the year with a bang. 

    Please scroll down and follow a step-by-step guide and get ready to have a very beautiful end to 2014.

    For Amanda’s sexy hairstyle, blow-dry your hair with a large round brush, making sure to flick the ends inward and tease the hair at the crown for added volume. 

    To make sure your curls last all night, I would recommend using L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Diamond Hold (£6.70) to finish off.

    For medium-length hair; you need to add some texture that lasts, so you’ll need to add grit. Please bare in mind that you’re trying to achieve a very natural loose stylish wave.

    Start by spraying a texturising spray all over your hair; enough to make it damp. I will recommend using VO5 Give Me Texture (£4.19). Take big sections of your hair and twist around a large curling tongs; try the babyliss large 38mm barrel (£20),hold the hair for 5 seconds, and then let it slide down naturally.

    *Please do not forget to use heat protection; you don’t want to burn your hair on this big night.

    If you don’t want to use curling tongs, I would recommend braiding your hair, after applying the texturising spray. Then blow dry your hair and undo the braids.

    I hope you found this post inspiring??
    I hope you have had a very restful weekend!!

    January 2015 UK Film Release

    By Posted on 0 Comments 3 min read 3 views
    Hello! How are you this fine evening? 
    I wanted to talk films…… yayyy. My other favourite past time lol.
    It’s almost the end of 2014 and because i am anal when it comes to planning. I had a very busy searching the interweb looking and finding news relating to films I have wanted to see. I must confess that there are quite a few movies I am so excited to see finally. 

    The Interweb has been loaded with lots of talks of some of these very very big blockbusters releases next year. So I hope they all live up to the hype because I have been burnt before and no one likes to be disappointed especially when it comes to movies.

    Here are some of the the films I’d like to see in January 2015.

    The Theory of Everything (2014)
    Theory of Everything.jpg
    The Theory of Everything is a British biographical romantic drama film directed by James Marsh and adapted by Anthony McCarten from the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen by Jane Wilde Hawking, which looks at her relationship with her ex-husband, theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, his diagnosis of motor neuron disease, and his success in physics.
    The film stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the lead role with Charlie Cox, Emily Watson, Simon McBurney, Christian McKay, and David Thewlis in supporting roles.
    This film is due for release on Thursday 1st January 2015.

    Taken 3 (2015)

    Taken 3 is an upcoming 2015 action thriller film directed by Olivier Megaton and written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. It is the sequel to the 2012 film Taken 2 and the third and final film in the Taken trilogy. The film stars Liam NeesonMaggie GraceFamke Janssen and Forest Whitaker.

    I am very much looking forward to where the story takes us next. With Liam Neeson in the lead role again; the ultimate action hero, doting father and a loving husband but can be very very deadly when you mess with his family. 

    Taken 3 will be released in UK cinemas on Friday 9th January 2015.

    Into the Woods (2014)
    Into the Woods(2014) is an American musical fantasy film directed by Rob Marshall and produced by Walt Disney Pictures.  Adapted to the screen by James Lapine from his and Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award–winning Broadway musical of the same name.

    The story is fantasy genre crossover centred on a childless couple, who set out to end a curse placed on them by a vengeful witch. Inspired by the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales of “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Cinderella”, “Jack and the Beanstalk”, and “Rapunzel”.
    Funnily enough Into the Woods is also due for release in UK Cinemas on Friday 9th January 2015.

    American Sniper (2014)
